Hey, New York tri-state area folks! Join me this Thursday at the New York Times Small Business Summit.
I will be there along with my friend John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing and Will Chen of WiseBread. The 3 of us will be holding round-table Q&A sessions throughout the day, all made possible courtesy of American Express OPEN Forum.
The topics we’ll cover include:
- How small businesses can prepare for new social media trends.
- The current business landscape for small business owners (my assigned topic)
- How to build your web presence and optimize for local search
But we can talk about any business topics you’d like to discuss.
In addition to our roundtables, there will be a great line-up of speakers, including New York Times business editors and bloggers, Jerry Greenfield a Founder of Ben & Jerry’s, Shiv Singh, the Social Media Director at PepsiCo, and Robin Chase, Founding CEO of ZipCar.
